Latin American Studies

Our minor in Latin American Studies introduces you to the peoples, places, and histories of Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking America. In addition to studying with faculty who have conducted extensive research in Latin America, you are encouraged to gain your own experiences in places like Peru, Guatemala, Ecuador, Brazil, Mexico and Dominica.

Considering Latin America’s continued political importance to the United States, and the growing Latino population in the U.S., this is an eminently useful degree to pair with a major in a number of disciplines that will be increasingly eager to employ individuals with a sound knowledge of Latin America’s peoples and traditions in the years to come.
